First diesel and new to the site!

Well it has been a couple months and I have to say that I definitely have the bug! I picked up a 2005 6.0 in August and have since added an MBRP turbo back, sinister coolant filter, revx, rotella T6, new trans fluid, changed all filters, head unit, and tint. I have been debating custom tunes for some time now and I just put in my order for them today. I talked with someone from IDP on the phone for a while and found them very helpful. I was thinking X street, street, and tow with braking. Any inputs on this? I will be DDing the truck and pulling loads under 10k sometimes. Although I have friends that DD on X street all the time, I am planning on doing studs, egr delte, etc. in a few months hopefully.

Thanks!

Sounds like a great start!

I have the X race, street, and aggressive tow tunes from IDP . They run a little hot for me, but they do run well

I ran my scanner last week and the ECT/EOT stayed within 10 degrees of each other. My coolant filter has taken care of most of the particles in the system. Do I need to switch away from the Ford Gold or should I just wait until they replace everything when I get the studs done?

If you are at 10, I would wait. Get it all done at once so you do not clog the oil cooler durring the flush. Also get a monitor that is always in there checking everything

Honestly, if you're not planning on big sticks or turbo anytime soon, I wouldn't waste the money on studs. Go with a Bulletproof kit and get rid of the problem children before they pop the HG's

And, with a coolant filter, I wouldn't waste the money on ELC

I wasn't quite expecting the $2200 price tag! I can get studs, egr delete, and new oil cooler installed for not much more than that. It just doesn't make sense to me to spend money on that kit when I am filtering the coolant already. If I put a new cooler in and egr delete when I do studs, there shouldn't be anything to clog up the cooler in theory correct? It seems like a lot of money for nothing IMO. I'm surprised that no one has come up with a cheap remote oil cooler kit yet. It can't be that hard or expensive to make one.

Actually, since the flow rate of the engine can reach 18.5 GALLONS per minute, it is expensive to develop a system that will flow at that rate, not have serious pressure drop across the system and sufficiently cool the oil in all climates in all conditions. Not as easy (or cheap) as you might think. The BPD system is a bargain for what it delivers, how it is delivered and the peace of mind knowing that all of the engineering a lay-person wouldn't think about doing has been done.

For the next eight months or so I am a college student. Once I actually have some income (in this economy) I'll try and add that system to my list. It is a great system no doubt.
